We hope you can join us for the last Agitprop reading of the summer at the San Diego Museum of Art, Thursday, September 1 at 7:00 PM, with Katie Farris & Ilya Kaminsky.
In conjunction with Agitprop Gallery, the Agitprop Reading Series is collaborating with the San Diego Museum of Art to present Thursday Summer Salons featuring contemporary artists and writers from Southern California. Museum admission is $12 for adults, $8 for students with college ID, and open to the public. The reading will take place in the Asian Court.
Katie Farris is the author of boysgirls (Marick Press, 2011) and her poetry, fictions, and translations have appeared in various journals, including Verse, Indiana Review, Washington Square, Hayden’s Ferry Review, New Orleans Review, Mid-American Review, Meridian, Fugue, and others. She holds an MFA from Brown University and currently teaches Comparative Literature and Creative Writing at San Diego State University.
Ilya Kaminsky was born in Odessa, former Soviet Union in 1977, and arrived to the United States in 1993, when his family was granted asylum by the American government. Ilya is the author of Dancing In Odessa (Tupelo Press, 2004) which won the Whiting Writer’s Award, the American Academy of Arts and Letters’ Metcalf Award, the Dorset Prize, the Ruth Lilly Fellowship given annually by Poetry magazine.

Doug Nufer writes prose and poetry based on formal constraints. His novels include Never Again (Black Square, 2004), where no word is repeated, and Negativeland (Autonomedia, 2004), where a negative appears in every sentence and the story runs backwards. His most recent books are the poetry collection We Were Werewolves (Make Now, 2008), and the just-released novel By Kelman Out of Pessoa (Les Figues). After getting a poem and a story placed in Chain and Fence respectively, he tried in vain to find a magazine named Link that would publish him. Recently he discovered that he has a homonym twin whose books are available on Amazon Kindle. Don’t be fooled.
Agitprop readings are free, but wine and donations to the gallery are always welcome. For more information about the Agitprop Reading Series and Agitprop Art Space, visit our webpage or join our Facebook group.
We hope to see you there and for festivities before and afterward.]]>
